Kindred Counters

Learn Kindred's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Kindred guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Kindred JUNGLE in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Kindred. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Kindred's Abilities

Kindred's Passive
Both Lamb and Wolf mark targets to hunt. Lamb marks an enemy champion for death (this mark activates after an 8 second delay), while Wolf periodically marks monsters in the enemy jungle. All champions can see which targets are marked.

After 40 seconds of having no active jungle mark, Wolf marks an enemy jungle monster for 3 minutes.

Wolf marks jungle monsters based on Kindred's current stacks:

0 Marks: Rift Scuttler
1-3 Marks: Rift Scuttler, Crimson Raptor, Gromp
4-7 Marks: Red Brambleback, Blue Sentinel, Ancient Krug, Greater Murk Wolf
8+ Marks: Rift Herald, Baron Nashor, Elemental Drakes, Elder Dragon

If Kindred kills a marked target or assists in their death, they gain a mark. Kindred's basic attacks and Mounting Dread gain 75 range at 4 stacks, plus 25 range every 3 stacks thereafter. Stacks also amplify Kindred's basic abilities:

Q - Dance of Arrows: Bonus attack speed increased by an additional 5% per stack.
W - Wolf's Frenzy: Current health damage increased by an additional 0.5% per stack.
E - Mounting Dread: Missing health damage increased by an additional 0.5% per stack.

Targets successfully hunted cannot be targeted again for 240 seconds. Lamb can also change her target after 90 seconds if the target hasn't died in that time.

Kindred vaults, firing an arrow at up to 3 enemies, 40 / 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 (+0.75 per bonus attack damage) physical damage and gaining 35% attack speed (+5% for every mark) for 4 seconds. While inside of Wolf's Frenzy, this ability's cooldown is reduced to 4 / 3.5 / 3 / 2.5 / 2 seconds.

Passive: Kindred gains stacks as they move and attack. At 100 stacks, Kindred's next attack restores up to 100 health depending on their missing health.

Active: Kindred claims a territory, ordering wolf to bite at the last enemy lamb attacked. Wolf's bites deal 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 (+20% of ability power) (+0.2 per bonus attack damage) (+1.5% (+1% per Mark) of the target's current health) as magic damage.

Kindred weakens an enemy, slowing them by 30% (+5% per 100 ability power) for 1 second.

Kindred's third attack against the target within a few seconds of each other directs Wolf to pounce on the enemy, dealing 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 plus (+0.8 per bonus attack damage) (+5% (+0.5% per Mark) of the target's missing health) as physical damage.

Wolf's pounce critically strikes for 80 / 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 plus (+0.8 per bonus attack damage) (+0.12 (+0.75% per Mark) of the target's missing health) as physical damage instead if they are below 25-75% health.

Kindred blesses the ground for 4 seconds, allowing no unit, ally, enemy, or neutral to die while inside. Upon reaching 10% health, units can't be damaged or healed while still inside the zone.

When the blessing ends, all units inside heal for 225 / 300 / 375 health.
